         The Hook-banded Wasp Hoverfly Chrysotoxum festivum is unquestionably one of the most handsomely marked flies to be seen in the UK. There are several similar flies in the genus Chrysotoxum but this is the only species in which the yellow abdominal markings donít reach the margins of the tergites.
